Salinas Varzea da Marinha

Reviewed By Pedro M - Cartaxo, Santarem, Portugal

Estas Salinas de Rio Maior, sem qualquer vislumbre de mar por perto, estão perfeitamente decoradas à época, sem modernismos, devidamente enquadradas com lojas típicas que vendem sal, flor de sal e outros artesanatos.
Na minha opinião só pecam pelo escasso estacionamento em horários mais concorridos e, ao contrário, pela quase desertificação em horários menos concorridos.
Poderia, talvez, haver um horário base, regular, que o visitante pudesse contar com alguém, por exemplo, que pudesse explicar o funcionamento das mesmas.
Os lojistas, na sua grande maioria, são pessoas muito simpáticas.
Aconselho a sua visita perto do Natal, altura em que estas Salinas se transformam num autêntico presépio de Sal.
